Habitat Bill of Rights.

Tehran: Hamdami Foundation, 1976.

Illustrated throughout with b/w photos and plans. 181 pages. Oblong 4to, blind-stamped white glossy wrappers, spine paper crinkled and edges just lightly worn. Tehran: Hamdami Foundation, 1976. Presented by [the Government of] Iran. A very good copy of this scarce publication on city planning. "It is an elaborate, book-length presentation that advocates the design of dwellings based on the values and living patterns of residents, rather than buildings which force occupants to alter their life styles. It also advocates the retention of pedestrian precincts in urban areas, and the harmonic relationship of architecture to its surroundings."

Written by the Habitat Bill of Rights Committee, appointed by the International Congress of Architects at Persepolis in September 1974. The working members of the Committee were: Nader Ardalan (Iran). Georges Candilis (France), Balkrishna Doshi (India), Moshe Safdie (Canada) Jose-Luis Sert (United States)." --Typewritten slip laid in following title page. From the library of Mildred Schmertz, who was the editor-in-chief of Architectural Record.
